Fantasy Football Week 13 Waiver Wire: Good Call Jamaal

Packers Jamaal Williams

While the Week 13 Waiver Wire is not jam packed with potential breakouts or fantasy studs don’t think its a place to avoid. There are RBs that can help you this week and going forward, WRs seeing volume and a QB to add now, even if his team hates him. Who should you add this week?


Jamaal Williams | RB | Green Bay Packers

Volume is king when it comes to fantasy football, especially at the RB position. Jamaal Williams is finding ways to help fantasy owners and should be added for the stretch run. Aaron Jones is likely done for the year and Ty Montgomery is still in limbo. The volume should continue on an offense that’s not as bad as we originally thought. Brett Hundley is not good but he is doing enough to make Williams and Davante Adams viable fantasy options. With the wasteland that is the RB position, add Williams for the stretch run.

Kenyan Drake | RB | Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins will be without Damian Williams for next week and potentially longer after he left Sunday’s game against the Patriots with a shoulder injury. Drake has looked explosive at times and should see the most if not all of the work in the short term. As I mentioned with Williams, volume is king. Add Drake, who started from the bottom now he’s here.

Jacquizz Rodgers | RB | Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers run game has been awful this season mostly due to Doug Martin being terrible. Peyton Barber found the end zone twice on Sunday but only had 5 carries for a whopping 7 yards. Rodgers had 8 carries for 31 yards and was targeted twice in the passing game. If you are in need of RB help this week Rodgers could be your guy with Martin expected to miss time.

Other names to target: Rex Burkhead, Austin Ekeler, and Rod Smith

Rams Cooper Kupp

Cooper Kupp | WR | Los Angeles Rams

It’s time to add Cooper Kupp. He excelled this week without Robert Woods, catching 8 of his 11 targets for 116 yards. Woods is expected to miss more time and it should continue to elevate Kupp who was already the leading red zone threat for the Rams. He is a no brainer add for those in PPR leagues. Non-PPR league owners can look his way too especially if those red zone targets turn into TDs. In deeper formats teammate Josh Reynolds could be a name to keep an eye on as well.

Corey Coleman | WR | Cleveland Browns

Corey Coleman has proven to be a big part of this passing game since returning from injury. He has been targeted 19 times over the past two weeks. He has 144 yards on 9 catches over that span. The Browns get the Chargers, Packers, and Baltimore over the next three weeks. Coleman can help you in all formats.

Dede Westbrook | WR | Jacksonville Jaguars

playdraftDede Westbrook is becoming a factor for the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past week. While he feel waaayyy short of his 200 yard goal in his first game, he has 9 catches on 16 targets over the past two weeks. The Jaguars have had issues with the run game of late and the schedule sets up real nice for the pass attack, even if it’s Blake Bortles under center. Westbrook could provide WR help in deeper formats. Add him this week!

Other names to target: Tyrell Williams, Dontrelle Inman, and Marquise Goodwin

Tyrod Taylor | QB | Buffalo Bills

Want to beat the rush on those streaming QBs? Add Tyrod Taylor now! His closing schedule so nice. The Bills have the best schedule for the fantasy playoffs per Scout Fantasy. Charles Clay looks to be regaining his early form and unless the Bills coaches or front office get real dumb again, Taylor should be a QB1 the rest of the way.
